    Good news if you have an AMD RX 480 (or any POLARIS10) card and haven't been able to resume from suspend since kernels 4.13 and 4.14. The patch has been finally merged

    No more having to build a kernel just to fix two uninitialized variables!

        Nope, all good!

        Linus had an epic rant about it to the developer: https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/10/26/511

          yes this is really epic :-) i really enjoyed it to read. and he has a real point i can not understand why some devs are at war with simple users and user space.

            Man, I hope somebody with Linus's testicular fortitude will step to maintain a tree up when he retires. The pimp hand appears essential to the quality of the kernel.

              He’s not the only maintainer. And the kernel does have a lot of regressions.

                Blunt, and to the point. I would not call it a "rant".

                In some professions (military for example) such way of talking is a pretty standard way for explaining dumb subordinates what exactly they did wrong..
